Disney has added new adaptive roleplay kids’ costumes and wheelchair cover sets to its previously available assortment that launched last year.
In addition to adaptive costumes inspired by Disney Princess and Pixar characters that were created in collaboration with Disguise, new items include a Marvel Studios “Black Panther” adaptive costume, “Star Wars: The Mandalorian” adaptive costume and a “Star Wars: The Mandalorian” wheelchair cover set. These adaptive features allow those who use wheelchairs and have other accessibility needs to transform into some of their favorite characters across the Disney portfolio.
Also available on ShopDisney.com is a robust Halloween 2021 lineup including costumes for adults, kids and pets.
“I’m thrilled that through the expansion of our adaptive roleplay collection, we can further connect our iconic franchises with fans and families worldwide through thoughtful design that allows everyone to take part in their favorite stories and worlds – from Marvel Studios ‘Black Panther’ to ‘Star Wars: The Mandalorian,’” says Stephanie Young, president, consumer products, games and publishing, Disney. "With today's announcement, we're better able to meet the needs of more of our Guests, and we're excited to see this inspired collection continue to grow."
The costumes are designed with stretch fabric that opens in the back to allow for more accessible dressing and has longer length inseams for wheelchair-friendly wear. The costumes also have flap openings on the front center with self-stick fabric closure to accommodate tube access. The wheelchair cover sets fit most standard wheelchairs with 24-inch wheels and come with supportive plastic piping pieces for added stability and long self-stick fabric strips to help keep the pieces in place. It is advised that the wheelchair is operated by a helper when the cover set is attached.
The 2021 Halloween assortment includes costumes inspired by new releases like Disney’s “Raya and the Last Dragon” and Marvel Studios’ “Wanda Vision” as well as Halloween classics like “Hocus Pocus,” “Haunted Mansion” and Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas.”
Additionally, the lineup features new clothing, accessories and décor featuring Disney’s villain characters, Marvel’s heroes and more.
This year’s Disney Halloween collection and more can be found on ShopDisney.com or at Disney Parks and Resorts for select items.
